Some definitions:

From Stephen Brown: "A learning object approach implies reusability, a database and (probably) CMS, a metadata schema, vocabularies... It all seems rather complicated. It might be more reassuring (and manageable) if you were to adopt a simpler strategy of units of study addressing each of the topics in turn. Strictly speaking a photograph is not a learning object because on its own there is nothing educational about it. It becomes a learning object when associated with a learning activity (whatever the learners are supposed to do with it) and a learning outcome (what they should be able to do as a result of engaging with it. Without these aditional bits its just a fragment of resource."

From Rob: "whatever we can describe with our chosen LO metadata schema".

From Adrian: "A content item that is described, via metadata, sufficiently well enough to allow it to be used in a variety of different courses without modification".

From Laura: "A leaning object is supposed to fulfil a specified learning outcome. A content item, or whatever we can describe with metadata may not fulfil this criterion".
